Keep getting HDD error 128,""

I keep getting a HDD error sporatically when I shut my computer off. I use
BartPE (WinXPsp2) CD and run CHKDSK c: /f to correct the error and below is
the output from that. I don'g lose anything but it is annoyning as it shows
up as a BSOD on boot up, and I have to power down and power up again to get
it into Windows. Once it boots up, it is fine.

This is not just a hardware issue as I have two identical HDs that I swap
out (use TI to image the drive) and it happens on both. I have even rebuilt
the HDD from scratch (what a PITA) but it still happens.

Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

output of CHKDSK c: /f:

In a command prompt (aka DOS shell), run "chkdsk /?". /f only fixes
problems in the file system. Try using the /r parameter. If that doesn't
work, try the diagnostic utility from the web site for the hard disk
manufacturer. If that doesn't work, get SpinRite.
